The svn:eol-style property only works on files that have either no
svn:mime-type property set or the property is set to a text mime-type.
I suspect your VB files have the property set to
'application/octet-stream' instead for some reason.
But: if the mime-type is set to a non-text format, you have to find out
first why before you remove or change it.
